confronting their public servants. is that new in america? >> that report showed you and your viewers the sights and sounds of democracy in action. i think that should be applauded and we should say thank you to the people who are standing up to a very bad idea. we have in this tradition an ability for people to fight against ideas they don't like. we want them to do it peacefully and civilly but this should be respected, not criticized. if anybody is undermining the direction of the country it's people like dr. dean who say we should have a new health care system proposed by president obama. sean: interesting to see if the media will call him out on what he just lied about because we saw the tape and heard him with our own ears. 58 democratic senators. obviously byrd and kennedy are not feeling well so i wouldn't expect them to have a town hall but less than a third are willing to go out and meet with the american people. grandmothers, stay at home moms, veterans, concerned citizens. do you think they're hiding from the american people or they're afraid? >> clearly there's been a sca

and i mean america really falling back. i mean, america really declining. i mean opportunity slipping away. sound -- founded fierce? unfounded fears? >> the reason they're unfounded is because there's a disconnect between the people who are leading this country and the people who are supposed to be leading. a new poll shows that 70% of americans would favor less government and lower taxes. their attitude, that tastes great and it's less filling. that's what they'd really like to see. but the government and, look, republicans have to take some blame on this because they help set some of this stuff up with the tarp bill last fall. but when you start having a government that ignores the people, holds them in contempt, makes fun of them, calls them a mob -- sean: when did this ever happen? >> ridicules them. the divide gets greater and greater but clearly there's something not getting through to the people in washington, d.c. sean: governor, everything that the government seems to touch is bankrupt. i'm using a term government derangement syndrome, that in spite of the post office failing

"hannity" starts now. americans have united against government-run health care. democrats are scrambling for a second plan. declaring all out war in the senate. harry reid might soon decide to split the health care bill into two parts. one would contain less controversial measures like regulations on insurance companies. this bill would receive at least the 60 votes needed to pass it. the second half of the bill would contain the reckless budget details of the plan and the government auction. with virtually no republican support, democrats might use reconciliation to pass it. they would need only 51 votes to push this through. when asked about the possibility of these measure
strong majority in america that says no. sean: we have spent a lot of time talking about what is now commonly known as the death panels, these end-of-life counselors, the house will would mandate that when they're older in life, this would be mandatory and maybe more often. the senate just confirmed that they are dropping it from the bill. they had been denying it existed and now they're saying we're going to drop it. is that a victory for the people showing up at town halls? >> yes. they were trying to say these are nuts and sarah palin isn't very smart. sean: put a victory in sarp's column. >> i -- sarah palin's column. >> i found an op ed, which was a soup esh and said this is a real problem give financial incentives to doctors where we relied upon them working out with layer lawyer and now we are going to have a doctor going to make complicated decisions. and going to give them money to do it and then have them provide key questions and available resources. and the government defines both. is the government going to say, the catholic church is an available resource when it comes

this down america's throats, what is the political outcome of this? >> first of all, i think they will. i don't think they'll get republican support, at least i hope they don't, and i think they will try to get it with 50 votes, the so-called nuclear option. but i think they can be defeated. max balance cuss and jon tester come from a red state, conrad, a democrat from a red state, north dakota, johnson, a red state south dakota, pryor, landrieu and lincoln, a red state, arkansas. if you get all of these red state democrats to start seeing red because there are ads in their state and senior citizens are going crazy -- let me say this about the democratic party. they will pass this no matter what the polls say. but if they feel that the elderly, their core constituency, is turning on them, that they're almost repealing f.d.r.'s collision and that they are becoming an anti-obama group, they will not mess with that. sean: a lot of these democrats are scared to death and they're can selling town hall meetings and opting for telephone town hall meetings, because they don't want to be confronte

system in america. we are of the fundamental belief the quality of healthcare is the best in the world and you have to preserve it. the problem is the affordability availability not the quality. >> look at what democrats are talking about the various taxes they have at least thrown out there as a trial. the latest ones are for example plastic surgery which by the way probably that's going to impact both you and me oun the road. at least me for sure. they are talking about a soda tax, they are talking about taxing employer benefits, they are talking about a millionaire surcharge tax. the bottom line is they are talking about significant tax increases when the economy is in a slow down. what is your reaction of any of those tax increase proposals? >> my reaction is this is the worst time in recent history to raise anybody's taxes. but the point is that when we are talking about reform and reducing costs, why do we have to increase taxes? why do we have to increase revenues there's a fundamental contradiction there. the truths they need by allowing small businesses to have fai -- based tr

: tonight in "your america" bad news for president obama. his approval numbers are slipping into dangerous territory. a new cnn opinion poll shows that president's approval rating has dropped 7 points in the last 100 days and 20 points since february. now, the poll also shows that more americans rated president george w. bush's first six months in office as a success than president obama's. now, the news from quinnipiac university is even worse. their latest survey shows that the president's approval numbers have dropped all the way to 50%. joining me now with reaction, fox news anchor/analyst kimberly guilfoyle and a columnist, and we have other polls showing that his approval now has dropped that threshold, you know, below 50%. >> that's right. sean: how do you analyze? >> well, if i'm working his administration, i'm very concerned. this is not a good sign, especially since he's trying to increase his political capital and good will with health care reform, to show that he's someone who will follow through on his promises. you see the american public dissatisfied with what he has intende
